Wild Wheat Harvest. What to do now?
2016 was one of the earliest wheat harvests in Ontario. How will this impact your farming operation? Peter Johnson will discuss the 2016 wild wheat harvest and provide his insights into what impact this wheat harvest will have on future crops. Peter Johnson is an Agronomist and Independent Consultant in Southwestern Ontario. He records “Wheat Pete’s Word”, a weekly podcast update with current cropping information and answers to questions from growers. Peter retired from OMAFRA after a thirty-year career culminating as the Provincial Cereal Specialist. In 1997, Peter was honoured with the TR Hilliard Distinguished Agricultural Extension Award. His passion for agriculture continues today.
Residue Management is an important component of crop production in today’s agriculture industry. Morris Sagriff is an Ontario agronomist who worked with a leading seed firm for more than a quarter of a century. His goal when working with farmers is to share his knowledge and professional experience to help farmers get the most from their production. Morris believes that by gaining a better understanding of the dynamics of modern day agriculture, farmers will be able to better understand the growing season and the interactions of the environment and management that can have both a positive and negative affect on the performance of the 2016 crop in Southern Ontario.
